Episode 18

DS-HV: Veitavalu Camp (Day 36)

The tribe returned to their camp after tribal council, everyone was left on edge after Sophie's blindside, with everyone not willing be the first one to speak up. That until Victoria spoke up and pulled Janet away.

Victoria, was a furious with Janet for pulling a move like that, Janet rebuts by saying that Victoria was also going to try and blindside her tonight, so that made them even. Janet added that she was able to convince them to target Sophie instead of her tonight. Victoria, knew that she will need to gain Janet's trust back to get back the numbers, so she reluctantly forgave her, in hopes that she's willing to work with her moving forward.

Andrea believed that she made the right move, as it is looking like almost everyone is going to be tough to beat at final tribal council, Sophie proved to be masterful strategic threat. And so, she needed to secure a final three that will easier for her to defeat, that being Abi and Marty, for their lackluster social relationships with the jury. Abi-Maria, also believes that she can only win if she brings Marty and Andrea to the end, as both of their games required a lot of flipping back and forth, rubbing some people the wrong way, and will be more difficult for them to explain and defend on Day 39.

Malcolm was still shocked about the vote, and was angry at Abi for flipping and ruining their alliance, saying that she's truly untrustworthy, right in the middle of their shelter for everyone to hear. This upsets Abi, and soon enough, the two of them start to bicker. With Marty and Andrea right beside them, trying to calm the situation down.

Victoria and Janet returned to their shelter, witnessing the fighting that ensued. After a while, the two stopped fighting. But it was definitely an uncomfortable night for the entire tribe.

DS-HV: Immunity Challenge (Day 36)

Challenge: Chimney Sweep

Alright, are you guys ready to get to today's immunity challenge? First's things first, Andrea, I have to take it back, once again immunity is up for grabs, for today's challenge:

You are going to use your arms to brace yourself between two walls, while your feet are perched on very narrow footholds, every 10 minutes, you will move to an even smaller foothold, making it even more difficult, if you drop, you are out. Last person left standing, wins immunity, safe from the vote. Losers, tribal council, somebody will become the ninth member of our jury.

We'll draw for spots, let's get started.

This Challenge is on!!

DS-HV: Immunity Challenge Results (Day 36)

Everyone is up, and this challenge is on! This challenge will put you in an uncomfortable position, this will be all about endurance, soon enough your arms and feet will feel the pain, and you'll drop. All you have to do, is to outlast the other five, and immunity is yours, and as we saw, tribal after tribal, you can never be safe in this game without this necklace right here. Janet drops, she is out, we are down to five. Marty is hurting, you can see in his face, Survivor is tough, I'll give you that, these challenges really require you to dig deeper than ever. And just as I say that, Marty gives out, he is out of this challenge, we are down to four.

It has now been 10 minutes, we'll now move down to the second foothold, it will be even smaller, and will be more difficult. I'll count you in, 3, 2, 1. Everyone is in position, we'll have 10 minutes in this foothold, after that, we'll move further down. Malcolm hanging in there, Victoria looking strong, Andrea is shaking, but makes a good recovery, and Abi is really focused, barely moving an inch. All four aren't giving up in this challenge, let's see how it plays out.

It has now been 20 minutes, we'll now move down to the third and final foot hold, this one is barely half an inch, it will be painful. I'll count you in, 3, 2, 1... Malcolm can't make the transition, he falls and he is out. We are down to three... Victoria, Abi and Andrea, this last foothold will be the most difficult, so we will just play it out from here. Andrea's foot slips, but manages to hang on, nice recovery. It will be a massive win if Andrea wins this, as it would be her fourth immunity win in this season. Victoria only has one win so far, but looking at what happened at tribal council, it looks like she will be needing this one. While Abi has yet to win any immunity, it will be impressive if she can pull the rug from under them.

You have been up there for 45 minutes, great effort from all three women, but sadly there is only one necklace available, this challenge will go on until two of you drop out, so everything you have in the tank, use it. You have to Dig Deep. And all of a sudden... Victoria drops, she is out, we are down to two. Abi and Andrea, who wants this immunity necklace more. Now's your chance to win it. Andrea seemingly having trouble with her feet, while Abi's arms are shaking... this will be a close challenge... and Andrea drops!! Abi-Maria wins immunity!!!

Abi, come on over, first individual immunity win this season, couldn't have come at a better time, congrats. You are safe in tonight's tribal council, cannot be voted out of this game, congrats. As for the rest of you, tribal council tonight, where somebody will be the nineteenth person voted out and the ninth member of our jury. Big stakes, grab your stuff head back to camp, I'll see you all at tribal.

(Abi won because of her challenge advantage points from winning reward challenges. Winning over Andrea by 2 votes.)

DS-HV: Veitavalu Camp (Day 36)

The tribe returned to their camp after the immunity challenge. Abi was super proud of her immunity win, as she knew that she needed this one, right after making a bold move yesterday, and arguing with Malcolm during the fall out, and it's always better to have this necklace around your own neck.

Abi now then gathered Marty, Janet and Andrea, that they can just simply use their numbers to split their votes 2-2 between Victoria and Malcolm, that way even if one of them has an idol, it can and will be safely flushed away, and securing the four of them into the final five.

Meanwhile, Victoria and Malcolm were planning their resistance, as it is looking like Marty, Andrea and Abi were all taking each other to the final three... their only hope is too pull in Janet to make a move, a 3-2-1 split to take out either Marty or Andrea, or if they sense anything has gone wrong, a 3-3 deadlock and rock draw will be their final hail mary. Victoria goes up to bring Janet into their plan.

Marty soons spots Victoria chatting with Janet, and tells Abi and Andrea that their plan is in jeopardy, and they should set up a plan B. They considered just piling their votes toward one person, but the risk of an Idol was too much, and so they considered blindsiding Janet instead. And to add some security to their plans, Marty goes up to Malcolm, and tells him that his alliance may be in to blindsiding Janet, and maybe he and Victoria could just save the trouble and just vote Janet out.

Victoria, after hearing the change of plans from Malcolm, were flabbergasted, and both of them were left questioning the genuineness of Marty's words. Victoria, of course still has her hidden immunity idol, and it is looking like she will have to use it tonight, but she really wants to see if she can delay it one more round and secure herself a spot in the final four, but with everything that is going on, can she still trust anything?? And so, Victoria and Malcolm held on to hope, that they will make the right move tonight.

DS-HV: Tribal Council #19 (Day 36)

The game changed once again, as a new alliance of four emerged from remnants of before. Abi, Marty, Andrea and Janet, took control of the game, blindsiding Sophie and leaving Victoria and Malcolm to fend for themselves.

Andrea, Marty and Abi, all knew it was in their best interest to bring each other to the end, ostracizing Janet, and bring some hope to Victoria and Malcolm, who knew that could do something with only three votes. So when the time came for strategizing, the majority alliance wanted to split their votes between the two outsiders, in case any of them had an idol. But Janet's position in their alliance became a conundrum, as she was invited over to the other side to make a game changing move.

So, Marty had to improvise, and put Janet's name on the chopping block, and insisted Malcolm and Victoria to take the bait.

Which way will this vote go? Only one way to find out.
